Migration Alert + Your Support

Posted 04-07-2012 at 03:48 PM by Alex Pepple
Dear Eratosphereans,

We're being forced to move - that is, move the server and all the data.

The problem is that they're not lifting a finger to help so, I'm completely...

walking with sheep

Posted 04-02-2012 at 08:50 AM by doina percival
As I zig-zag behind the scattered sheep, to group them into a flock, steer them my desired way, I wonder - is this really a sensible activity for an untrained human? One person and his dog would take minutes to get the sheep from where they are to where they are wanted. It takes me an hour.

My Left Foot . . . . and Smelly Dog

Yes, the Academy Awards are coming up tonight and here are some thoughts about the awards and some recent great films and actors.
